Kaizer Chiefs hand Sabelo Radebe a lifeline

Sabelo Radebe, a player who has come through the youth ranks at Naturena, made just 12 DStv Premiership appearances last season.

“Siya sources in the know have now informed Soccer-Laduma that the 23-year-old (Radebe) appears to have been handed a lifeline by Chiefs’ new coach Molefi Ntseki, who is renowned for his work with the youth, wants the youngster to prove himself in the club’s set up and included him in Amakhosi’s recent trips to Nelspruit, Tanzania and now Botswana. There was talk of a possible move to Stellenbosch FC on loan for the 2023/24 campaign, but indications are that the midfielder is likely to stay on for the time being.”

Radebe will have to compete with the fit-again Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, new man Mduduzi Mdantsane and fan favourite Mdu Shabalala for the playmaker role. Can he cut the mustard?
